Women supporting women
The Maya Centre
The Maya Centre provides free, safe and confidential counselling for women without access to mainstream therapy options. Based in Islington, the small community-based charity supports women who have experienced mental health issues, trauma and gender-based violence, including domestic violence, physical abuse or childhood sexual abuse and harmful traditional practices.
The charity is a multi-ethnic women-only counselling service. It is a safe space run by women for women who will experience a therapeutic journey leading to empowerment, emotional and psychological awareness and healing.
For every sale, I will donate 5% of the total amount to The Maya Centre 🤍

Arts For All
Arts For All runs structured weekly art therapy sessions to engage people of all ages from diverse cultures and background and those with special needs.
The centre is based within one of the most deprived areas of the UK and many of the families served by the centre are unemployed. Three quarters have English as their second language.
I work part time at this arts centre, assisting with creative sessions for the adult and children groups. All of the members are amazing and the team there are just GORGEOUS inside and out.
For more information, go to artsforall.co.uk or you can donate directly on their Just Giving page 🤍
